COMMENT

The Atlanta Hawks held on late to take a thrilling Game 1 victory at Madison Square Garden. Trey Young hit the late winner and stole home court advantage from the Knicks with a 107-105 victory.

Hawks make triumphant return to the playoffs

Both teams were making their first playoff appearance in a number of years, but it was the Hawks, who hadn’t played a post season game since 2017, who showed the poise deep in the fourth quarter.

In his career first playoff game, Trey Young took charge in the fourth quarter, and hit the game winner with under a second left on the clock to take Game 1 from the Knicks.

The Hawks led for more than the lions share of the evening. The visitors sprung out to an early double digit lead in the first quarter and kept the Kicks at a distance until the final minutes of the half.

The Garden silenced by Young

The Knicks got a nearly packed Madison Square Garden back on their side after a 15-3 third quarter run put New York in front going into the fourth quarter.

There were six lead changes in the final four minutes of the game, the last one being Young’s floater down the baseline with 0.9 seconds left on the clock.

Young shines in playoff debut

It was the dream playoff debut for Young who finished with 32 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic came through late in the game with some timely buckets, on his way to 18 points.

The Knicks starters never got going, and they depended on their bench to keep them in the game late. Alec Burks had 27 points off the bench, and Derrick Rose had 17. Despite the bench scoring 64 points it wasn’t enough to hold off Young.

Game 2 on Wednesday at MSG

This series looks like it has the potential to go the distance. Game 1 showed that there is not much between these two teams. The Knicks will have to respond in in Game 2 on Wednesday night, while the Hawks have a chance to return to Atlanta up 2-0.

The fans are back for the NBA Playoffs and the Garden is no different. The Knicks and Hawks will play in front of a limited capacity crowd.

We are about 20 minutes from tip off here from Madison Square Garden.

Hello everyone and welcome to New York as we get set to tip off Game 1 in the Eastern Conference playoffs from Madison Square Garden. AS English will be bringing you live coverage, updates, stats and highlights as the Knicks host the Atlanta Hawks.

The Knicks are in the playoffs for the first time since 2013, as they surged up the standings late in the regular season to not just make the postseason, but have home court in the first round. The Knicks finished with a record of 41-31 ending the regular season with a fourth placed finish in the East.

Much of the credit to the Knicks sudden rise to relevance can be attributed to Tom Thibodeau who took over in the offseason and quickly turned things around in the Big Apple.

Julius Randle has been incredible for the Knicks, in what has been a renaissance year for the former Kentucky Wildcat. Randle is averaging 24 points and 10 rebounds a game and is one of the candidates for comeback player of the year. RJ Barrett is second in scoring for New York at 17.6 ppg.

It’s been the defense that has really made the different for the Knicks. They clamped down on D allowing just 104.7 points while winning 16 of their last 20 heading into the postseason.

The Atlanta Hawks finished with the same 41-31 record as the Knicks, but lost the head to head series against tonight’s hosts so they will be on the road to start the first round.

The Hawks have a deep roster, with everyone producing, especially after Nate McMillian took the reigns at the beginning of March. McMillian led the Hawks to a successful final stretch of the regular season while qualifying for the playoffs for the first time since 2017.

Trae Young is one of the top up and coming talents in the league, and leads Atlanta’s charge into the playoffs averaging 25 points and almost 10 assists a game. Big man John Collins patrols the middle at 17 points and 7 boards a night. While Clint Capela is a beast on the boards averaging a league high 14.3 a night.

The Knicks beat the Hawks in all three regular season games, the latest of which was an OT thriller in April as the New York completed the regular season sweep.
